About exactly a year ago, JDS Development Group and Largo Investments picked up a mid-block assemblage of three short buildings with plans to raze them and erect a condo building designed by Roman & Williams. Things must be going according to plan, because the development at 514 West 24th Street, which will be known as The Fitzroy, just got its teaser website (h/t YIMBY). The website provides a first glimpse of the building's exterior, which the design firm formerly described to Crains as having "an ornate terra-cotta façade, copper-clad windows and other nods to classic Manhattan luxury." The development duo paid a bananas $700 per buildable square foot for the property, so there's no doubt that between that and the design bill incurred, these condos will be asking bank.
The ten-story building will have just 14 two- to five-bedroom apartments that will average about 3,000 square feet in size. Floorplans for the Art Deco-reminiscent building made their way down the pipeline in April.
